The Evolution Of Gas Station Food

I think 20 years ago if you mentioned "gas station food" the word "best" would not be an adjective for the cuisine lol I just wouldn't have considered a gas station as a place to get food. First, It was a small convenience store at the gas station with cigarettes, candy, soda, and a restroom. Now the gas stations of today have all kinds of food. Sandwiches, soup, salads, desserts, coffee, pizza, fried chicken, ice cream, etc.
